We stayed at grizzly 6 nights in September. Great park, great location if not in the park. We enjoyed the wild west dinner in Yellowstone and the grand canyon of Yellowstone. You won't be able to see everything so plan out your days.

We stayed at the west KOA in Weat Yellowstone. It was nice but the next time i go out there I want to stay in the east KOA, the one closest to the park. For linger stays they have more going on.

Stayed in Fishin Bridge, booked site first week in Jan for first week in June. Stayed 6 nights, needed more time! Had one light snow while there. Big park, got several videos while there. Get a Golden Park pass if you do not have one, if not you pay every day to go in. If over 62 get the permanent pass, one price gets you in every park free, half price camping in COE cgs. Also diesel was nearly 50 cents a gallon more in the park, kept half tank or better with fuel purchased outside park. Left there hit Devils Tower, Cody, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse. Rapid City is good place to day trip from, much to see there as well. Enjoyed the Badlands.

Be prepared for cool weather. I was in Yellowstone in mid-June 1990 and 1994 and it snowed both times!

Hope you'll be luckier.

I don't know how long your RV is. Anything too big could be a challenge!! There is much to see in the Park. Also, if you go out the south entrance, you can drive through Grand Teton National Park, into Jackson Hole. The Virginian RV Park is VERY nice. You can catch the city bus just across the street that will take you downtown and it's free!! We also went on to Cody, Wyoming. Stayed at the Ponderosa RV Park. It is three blocks from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center - a must see in Cody. There is so much to see and do in Cody!! If you are interested, let me know. Have fun!!
Joni, thanks for the great information! I've been to Cody, but it's been a long time! We won't be able to make it there this time. Happy New Year!

Thanks for the info about the Golden Park pass--I'll have my tour guide (wife) look into that. I drive a gas truck currently, so won't worry about the diesel. I'm not 62 yet, but slowly creeping up on it (currently aged 34!).

Have a great day!

We stayed at Grizzly RV park and it was a very good park and friendly staff. They had a policy that if you wanted to cook on the picnic tables to come by the office and get a pad, that was nice. I came home and found the sheet of double faced foam board and now I have my own pads. It was a good idea I got

We went last May. The southern and eastern entrances were still closed. The loop around eastern part of Lake was closed as was fishing bridge. They also had road construction. Not sure how that is coming along.

No matter what time of year you go, pack for cold weather. High altitude and cold weather moves in quick. Last August we had our motorcycles in Red Lodge and planned to ride into the park. We crossed Beartooth Pass in a Rain cloud at 33*F, it was 38* in Cooke City. It was mid eighties the day before.

Thanks for the input! Even though it will be late May, we will plan on winter weather, just to be safe!

End of May, some roads in the park are still closed with 6' or more of snow over the road. In other areas, we were looking at places the plows had cut through the and those banks were higher than our rig (12').
